WERE it not for a visit to her junior college in 2004, Miss Tan Joo Huang’s overseas study experience might have been vastly different. That year was when the Nanyang Junior College alumnus came across CMS Pte Ltd, an educational consultancy, when they visited the junior college.

Before that, I had never heard of CMS or of educational consultancies in Singapore. So I went to talk to them about opportunities to study Biology overseas after my A levels," said Miss Tan, 28, now a PhD candidate at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School ...Read More

Testimonial from Tan Joo Huang PhD candidate at Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School as reported in New Paper April 25th 2014

"Two years ago, when my son Kevin decided that he would like to go to Australia to obtain his degree, I was not sure how to go about selecting the right university for him. It was then that I decided to approach David Teo from CMS. He was very patient and thorough in walking me through the various options for my son, which helped us to arrive at our choice of university. We even had the opportunity to speak privately with a representative from the University. There were many other occasions where we had to call David and Jim from CMS for advice on student housing, airticket and other matters in preparation for the trip to Melbourne. We never fail to get prompt assistance and advice.

I would certainly recommend the services of CMS to my friends."

I thank you once again for your support and wish you all the best in your business."

My friends and I wrote to many universities offering mass communications and were interested in Murdoch. Coincidentally Murdoch's admission officer was present at CMS (Pte) Ltd then and we went to see her. I had some problems with my grades but with CMS's help I was granted admission.

Mary Tham, student

Dear David

Good morning.
My daughter Jasmine, just received some very positive news for her admission to NTU last night. As such, I would like your help to inform both Monash and UQ that Jasmine will not be taking up their kind offer of admission.
My family and I would like to extend our sincere appreciation to your efforts and help in my daughter application to Monash and UQ. Your professional suggestions and ideas are very valuable to us, the last couple of months on the Australia university suggestions for Jasmine. Thank you.
Have a good weekend!
God Bless,
Daniel Lim

Yes, time just passed so fast… I graduated  in mid 1994 with a Bachelor of Commerce doubling majors in marketing and management; my husband, Conrad Tan graduated in 1994 December with a double in Accountancy and Information System. All thanks to your great guidance and support in us starting off in WA, we had made it...

Dear Mr David Teo,
My name is Conrad Tan Siong Huei, your ex-Murdoch student whom you had help to enrol in Murdoch in 1991, and I am Sophia’s father.
I am very grateful for your help and assistance to get Sophia into Murdoch on such a short notice. She is ready to start her term tomorrow morning. Bravo to you and your team!
Looking forward to our second daughter getting into Murdoch Uni next year and going through your assistance again!

Conrad Tan Siong Huei, your ex-Murdoch student and Sophia’s father.

Suryanto has successfully enrolled into the UWA despite the rush for the past week. This would not be possible without your help. We are really grateful for your assistance and would definitely recommend you to anyone we know who would like to pursue their studies overseas.

Thank you once again and have a great weekend.


Dear David,

Indeed praise the Lord!

Whilst a great lesson learnt in such unprecedented Monash case, CMS's sense of responsibility and dedicated service in following up Amanda's visa issue were much appreciated.

I would definitely recommend CMS to those seeking overseas education.

May God grant you favours upon favours and prosper CMS!

Thank you.

Joanna Tham
